AAA Tag Heuer watches have been synonymous to prestige, performance, technology and reliability.
While at first glance the new model appears similar to the current one, look more carefully and you see the changes are actually quite apparent: case, bezel, dial and hands have all changed. Welcome to the paradox of the classic replica Tag Heuer Aquaracer range.With a greater emphasis on quartz models, which feature subtle design changes to differentiate them from the mechanical models,the classic replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer range is not just the look of the watch that's new, it's also our first chance to see TAG Heuer's new pricing strategy played out across a major series. Boasting a full quartz range has allowed TAG Heuer to keep a tight grip on pricing, which starts at less than USD2,000.
There are two dial designs for the new Aquaracer. The Calibre 5 models (left) have a horizontal streak pattern across the dial, while the quartz models have a two-part dial, with a starburst centre dial (Blue dial only) surrounded by outer azurage patterning. The quartz has a simpler pattern, while the mechanical models gain a more interesting look. You'll also notice that the Calibre 5 has "Aquaracer" just below the Replica Tag Heuer Grand Carrera logo, while on the quartz model this sits above the 6 o'clock hour-marker. Even the hands are different- slightly thicker hour and minute hands for the Calibre 5, in addition to a more elaborate sweeping seconds hand.
There is no mistaking the watch for anything other than an Aquaracer, with the new model keeping the traditional look of the Aquaracer/ 2000 series that was launched more than 30 years ago. Take a look at the image below that shows the evolution of the 2000/ Aquaracer from 1982 (left), 1991 (centre) and 1995 (right).TAG Heuer 2000- History While the look has evolved, the basic design has been maintained through the case shape and the trademark six studs on the rotating bezel.The case may look familiar, but as we'll show you shortly, the design has changed from the current model. Also note the use of alternating polished and brushed surfaces, which helps lift the feel of the replica Tag Heuer Carrera watch substantially.All models share the same 40.5mm case, which is marginally smaller than the 41mm case of the previous model.
There are two confirmed options for straps for the Aquaracer 300m- the new-look rubber strap that you see above and the now ubiquitous "H-Link" bracelet first seen on the Grand Carrera, and now found across the Carrera range.Replica Tag Heuer Golf can also be found on the Gold models, although the alternating Gold links are no longer Gold plated, but are now Gold capped. What's the difference? Capped links use about 10X the amount of Gold than plated links.Replica Tag Heuer Formula 1 are the confirmed options, but we do hear that TAG Heuer is considering offering a NATO-strap as a third choice, which would be fantastic if it comes to pass and the first time that TAG Heuer has issued a NATO strap. We've seen brands like Tudor doing great things with alternative strap (distressed leather, NATO), so we look forward to seeing TAG Heuer's take on this trend.
